Obama hails the latest youth movement on climate protests

Former US president Barack Obama, visiting Berlin on Saturday, hailed weekly protests by youths against climate change, saying "the sooner you start, the better."

The Friday protests involve schoolchildren and teens and have been inspired by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg.

"Many of these people can’t vote, they are too young to vote yet, but they know what’s going on," Obama said during a meeting with youths in Berlin.

"You wouldn't let your grandparents decide what music you listen to, or what clothes you wear. Why let them decide what world you will live in," he said.

"Things change when we strongly mobilise," he said. "Our planet on which we live is in danger. We can’t succeed by sitting back and waiting for someone else to do it".

Obama, who left the White House in 2017 after two terms, was in Germany to promote his foundation.

He signed the Paris climate accord in 2015 which calls for capping global warming at "well below" two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) but the planet is currently on track to heat up by double that figure.

His successor Donald Trump decided in June last year to exit the accord.
